Ask any Avid4 Adventure parent what sets our camps apart and they'll say the same thing: it's all about the camp staff. While we pride ourselves on offering an exceptional overall experience—thoughtfully chosen recreation areas, professional-caliber equipment, adventures tailored to age and experience level, a time-tested approach to empowering kids—none of it comes together without the seasoned, committed people that make up our staff. But what exactly makes these adventure educators so great? We're glad you asked:
Spending family time outdoors is fun, invigorating and easy to do. So why can it feel like such a daunting task? Maybe because between work, school, after-school activities and social commitments, it's hard enough to get the whole family together for dinner, let alone for some kind of outdoor adventure. Or maybe because modern life involves so much sitting inside in front of screens that it's tough to rediscover that indoor/outdoor equilibrium. However, we have some tips & tricks below that will aid in getting your family outdoors to be active and healthy, and happy!

If a group creates a new trail and no one is around to see it, does it matter? Think you know about Leave No Trace (LNT)? I did, too. Turns out, I didn’t. Last week, if you asked me about LNT, I would have told you it meant bringing your trash home with you and leaving what you found – meaning, don’t take that unique rock home for a book end. In fact, I was so confident about my LNT knowledge that I immediately took the Online Awareness Course test on the LNT site . . . and failed.
At Avid4 Adventure, we think teaching kids to take risks is an essential part of helping them grow into self-assured adults. And while we do everything we can to keep them safe, we also empower them to push their limits as they explore the outdoors.
